Projects take place over the course of years and can begin as early as 8th grade. For students who first come to us as middle schoolers or as ninth, tenth, or eleventh graders, we begin with a one-hour evaluation. In so doing, we would also develop an academic and extracurricular strategy that will make your child as competitive as can be to the colleges to which he or she will eventually apply.

Whether you proceed with our assistance with the college application process or not, you will come away from this one-hour evaluation with invaluable insight into the process. One very common comment we hear subsequent to this one-hour evaluation is: Just about every highly selective college offers a great liberal arts education.

Our students do their homework. They show rather than tell admissions officers how much they want to attend a specific university and why. Read More Less Text. For most highly selective colleges, there are a number of supplemental essays in addition to the Personal Statement on the Common Application.
